I guess I'll go try adding/renaming regkeys in the hope that I'll find the right things to change/add.
I do not have the regkeys that are mentioned here. Could someone please post the whole section of regkeys so that I can try reconstructing what I should have?
hum... I saw you have windows xp home from your posted debug.err
It seems strange that you have no registry keys at all, could be a wider problem as I see it ... Furthermore, I'm reluctant about posting a full reg file as a "fix" because it could for example: not be installed in the default location, or not exactly the same versions and it could mess with a lot of things
before we go that way could you search in your registry for "galciv2" or "stardock" (without the quotes of course)
it may give a few results depending on your system, the one we are interested about should be located in :
and it could also be interesting to see if there's any results in
edit: just thought about something else, please make sure you're logged in with full administrator privileges, if that's not the case, you might want to try reinstalling the game with full administrator rights then recheck the existence of those registry keys (as a reminder for your system the reg keys should be : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Stardock\Drengin.net\Galciv2 )
